Start Packing

One time, I was completely overwhelmed about moving to a new apartment. I stressed and stressed, and then I picked up packing tape. I went to the bodega on the corner and got some old boxes and then I stressed some more.

When I finally acutally started wrapping things in newspaper and putting them in boxes, I felt *so* much better.

Same is true for my lecture preparation for this weekend of teacher training. I culled resources, I looked through all my favorite quotes, I listened to some lectures, and I stressed. When I at last stopped gathering and started writing, I relaxed.

Action is where it's at. James Russell Lowell was hip to action, "All the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action." You'll feel better when you start packing.
